  • Follow the signs from Stanley and a 10-15 minute walk along Wong Ma Kok Rd from the bus terminus will bring you to the cemetery on your left. The small cemetery is well kept and very quiet, overlooked...  more »
  • Cemetery One of the famous places in Stanley is located near Stanley Beach. Perhaps because it is a matter of protection of the Hong Kong Military Cemetery field, full of positive atmosphere, so there are some people even if the flat is afraid to go to cemetery, Gimme to the Stanley Cemetery field is not surprised, Zhong to be in the light of the film.

  • We caught a bus across to Stanley, on the south side of the island. The small well-kept Military Cemetery was a short walk from the town. We were very disappointed to find a wedding party using the 'Cross of Sacrifice' as their 'backdrop'.
  • The Stanley Military Cemetery is the final resting site of about 500 allied soldiers who lost their lives, some of them defending Hong Kong to the bitter end in World War II, as well as 9 civilians who died at the Stanley Internment Camp. British soldiers were buried here from 1841 to 1866, but the practice was halted for nearly 80 years until the end of World War II. Built on a hill with sharp, grassy slopes, a set of stairs leads up from the main entrance with the Cross of Sacrifice displayed prominently on top.
